      Then    flashes of light in virtual space
                    Soul’s inner kingdom
                            Racing feet
                    Without form or meat
              A sense of wholeness prevails
      You here    you there    you everywhere!
                   A wish to quietly shout
        No lips    no box    no guts to let it out
But there is color – beyond the rainbow
There is sound – flutes    
                                                      a thousand violins - 
                               all round
There is naught but being
                        No identifying clouds
This revelation –
                     You are in your closet
                                            Beyond carnal sensation - 

………………………………………………………..*Jesus said, “Go into your closet.”

    Daver, is this the kind of thing you were saying you could not do at PFT? It does look so cool to be able to format it this way. You do so well with line breaks. Good one!

    I'll go into a closet anytime if I could experience the sensations I find in your poem Dave. As it is, I am so fragmented outside as truth and confidence are elusive. Outstanding verse I connect with as it speaks to me. Love, Lizzy
